Most valuable asset on the shop

I put that up this AM thinking I’d write about it at lunch.  And by then I thought maybe I’d put the lift as the most important.  But it’s still the computer.  Well, in my case, iPad.  Not that the company thinks so.  20 years ago I had to prepare to leave if they didn’t get me a computer.  20 years ago I guess that was a big deal.

It’s much better now but if I want to use a company computer I have to go into the office and log on.  So I bought this and a database program called FileMaker and have been having a blast since..

    Hey Jeff, sure do..
    I’ve used Qqest, which I think is now Maintenance Manager, and Toro has an online program that a lot of people are using. Doesn’t matter what equipment you have. I’m working on my own program right now..
